Transcript From GLSA to GLOBAL GLSA had been a familiar abbreviation to most students at UH for the past eight years, but these initials for the Gay and Lesbian Students Association are now obsolete. Members of GLSA voted to change the group's name to the Gay, Lesbian Or Bisexual Alliance, and use G.L.O.B.AL. for the new acronym. The purpose of the change was to be "more inclusive," said Rodney Hakes, the treasurer and membership coordinator for the group. "I am very happy about that. It might open the door for more people to feel comfortable and become involved," said Lisa Breitenfeldt, the activities coordinator. The change from GLSA to G.L.O.B.AL. was not the first for the organization. The Gay Liberation Front, in 1971, was the earliest incarnation of the group, but it was not recognized by the university. In 1973, the Gay Activists Alliance formed and was the first gay student group in Texas to be recognized by a university. They amended their name in 1978 to include lesbians. A second group, called Gay Resource Services, formed in the early '80s to concentrate on service activities, but both groups had disbanded by 1984. GLSA was formed in 1985. Since then, spin-off groups have included: Oppression Under Target, a short-lived activist group; Delta Lambda Phi, a gay men's fraternity that is currently re-organizing, and Straight But Not Narrow, a recently formed support group with non-gay members. -shane patrick boyle Taking the CEO Challenge Students showed off what they had learned in college by spouting off facts such as when and where Malcolm X was assassinated and what the largest crop produced by the Chinese is, in exchange for prizes and free food from the Council of Ethnic Organizations. Students were challenged to put their knowledge about other cultures to the test at the Satellite Hill as part of the CEO's annual Cultural Challenge quiz game. Trang Phan, CEO president and senior English major, said, "This game is designed to test students' knowledge of different cultures around the world, just to see how much they know." CEO is the official representative body for the ethnic and international organizations at UH. It also serves as the medium for ethnic and international concerns on campus. In addition to the annual events, CEO is instrumental in co-sponsoring numerous programs with more than 60 of its members organizations. "Students who walk by are asked to stop and take the quiz. A group of five or six students must answer a list of 10 questions, and the person with the highest score wins the round. The winner must then pick a number between one to 20 and receive the prize with the matching number already taped to it," Phan said. Fernando Somoza, a graduate chemistry student, said, "It was a challenging and diversified game. I am would encourage others to take the quiz to find out how much they know and don't know." The Afro-Cuban Ensemble performed several selections while contestants penciled in their answers and received complimentary pastries. Winners from the rounds averaged scores of 60, with the exception of three students who scored 80 points. The prizes included such items as T- shirts, coupon books and a backpack. Mark Flores, a senior music composition major, said, "The questions were good and fair. I learned about other countries and cultures in college, through my history classes. I would definitely encourage others to take the challenge-it should be mandatory." -Charlotte Pennye Organization Updates # 221
